[mythtv-users] Move to new master backend

Hi everybody,

I'm planning to move my current mythtv backend to a new box.  What is the best 
method?  Do I simply back up the database, install myth on the new box, copy 
the existing recordings and restore the database there?  

Also, I currently have 3 disks for storage, set up as /mnt/store, /mnt/big, 
and /mnt/huge.  On the new box, I will only have 2 disks for now. Do I have to 
recreate all 3 folders?  Are the recordings tied to the file location in some 
way, or just the file names.

Any advice would be appreciated.
